Inhabited milieu's challenges
The main goal is to increase high-quality urban spaces and provide meeting places for all ages. Sustainable choices in everyday life should be facilitated by adding connections between areas and functions that today are separated. Increasing the presence of the surrounding nature into the city with new green areas, facili- tated accessibility and sight lines, is seen as valuable. In the same time the access from the city to the water and its surrounding green areas must be improved and facilitated.

Questions to the competitiors

  • How can the barriers between Piteå city centre and the recreational area by the water be bridged, while adding a new railway and expanding the city?
  • Where should a transportation hub most strategically be placed to function as a hub for the new area and the existing city?
